I have two Blythe dolls I bought a few years ago and life got in the way and they got put away. Recently I came across someone else"s Blythe pictures and it reignited my love for these little big eyes sweeties! Right now I'm working on some room sets. I bought a brand new one, a punk rocker, but my daughter is borrowing it to make hats until her's arrives. I'm so excited to share this interest with her! :)
My daughter made this adorable hat! I'm so proud of her work!
I had a wonderful birthday! It started last Saturday with my oldest daughter and her family coming down to visit and today Paul and I went to have lunch at the MFA!
click on picture! That's us taking a picture! Our reflection! ha!
I love this picture of us. Paul looked so handsome, especially since he hates to get dressed up and he does NOT like going to museums and like places but he came down all dressed up and we ate at one of the resturants and he pushed me around in a wheelchair. That allowed me to see much more than if I had used my cane. ~sigh~<3 We only saw part of the first floor but since we bought a membership I can go back for more! love love! I told Paul I had to get a picture of him next to a piece to prove he was there! haha~ No, seriously, he really had a great time and getting out did a lot of good for us. I always find the art museum inspiring.
I haven't blooged in so long, spending too much time on FB. Lately I've been trying to do some art and have been dry as a bone. Hopefully soon I'll get my muse back!
If anyone is out there...xoxo..and thanks for visiting..really!
Whew...Umoungst (is that a word?) my many projects including the remodeling of my hall/personal museum! I finally have some items up on Etsy with more to add.
My first one sold (thank you Deborah!) but I have more styles and more to come. Here are a couple:
Collaged earrings...made using vintage postage stamps and approx 16 layers of paper and gloss,
My Etsy is JMKoriginals and my name there is jmkmini JMKoriginals
More earring sets, a necklace and some art pieces yet to go up! I've been busy for months! My hands have been geting progressivly worse but I'm just going to keep doing what I can until I can't! I know God hasn't abandoned me and he will give me what I need at the time. Thank you for visiting here. I know I don't post often. I tried to promice I would do more but it's not always possible, so I appreciate any of you that stop in. If you would I would love to hear from you, comments are always welcome.
p.s. I have pictures of my brand new hall to gp up too! It took almost 1 year to the date. plasterers, glaziers, electrician and 2 seperate carpenters to finish it!
Her name is Hope and she is a survivor. Her lover didn’t but their love survives inside her. The sadness and tear is the remembrance of that love.
On the first anniversary of the attack on 9-11-01 I was looking through the newspapers and magazines I had saved and found what I thought at first was a black and white photo of people walking down the street coming from ground zero. I was wrong, it was actually a color photo but the people were all covered in ash. They were all shades of gray, what an effect it had on me. It brought back all those feelings I felt that day. That’s when I decided to make this art doll.
Hope represents the spirit of survival and moving on with life. In her hand is a copy of a Sept 12th 2001 newspaper. On one side of her head is a large hole with cob webs of memories. Her stiffened dress represents her strength that carried her through, and the tear is because it still hurts. Her love was lost as the buildings
crumbled but she is moving on with life with a renewed strength and hope.
The Falling Man
This is the story that most of the media didn't want to talk about. I wasn't sure if I wanted to watch and listen to the story but I'm glad I did. The story needed to be told. If you want to hear it I want to warn you because it is upsetting.
